Video package on Enzo and Cass break up starts us off.
Enzo starts us off. Enzo vs. Cass will happen at Great Balls of Fire. Enzo says over the past year, he has been knocked out, beaten, disrespected, and it all happened when Cass had his back. Enzo says he was looking right past him. Week after week he runs his mouth, but he gets right back up. Cass never had his back, so, what is the worst thing that Cass can do? Knock him out at a PPV? It's already been done. Enzo goes on to say that he is one of the toughest guys to step through the ropes in a long time. Enzo says he knows who he is, he doesn't need to be someone he is not. Enzo says he is confident and grateful.He is grateful for his dad, for every kid out there wearing a "Certified G" shirt. Enzo says he is going straight to the top. He has climbed out of holes, way deeper than 7 feet. He says Cass is nothing more than a 7 foot catch phrase that Enzo wrote. Enzo goes on to say that Cass needs to start wearing a shirt that says "Cass-hole". Enzo says that boot Cass hit him with gave him new life and Enzo is now an army of one.
Cass says that he is the star, he is where the money is and if Enzo thinks he can just sit there and run his mouth... Enzo comes from behind and knocks him down! Refs come in to take them apart! The match takes place this Sunday!
